Technical, Analytical Support for Software

Lattice cloud exampleThe R&SS group provides technical and analytical software support for a number of statistical packages.  With a focus on using R software, our staff members have much experience with the others we support as well.  While you may have access to other programs – depending on specific departments' expenditures, those listed below are the only packages supported by R&SS.

The software supported by R&SS is available in most UNT computer labs in their full version at no additional cost to students or employees.

The UIT Department will support a home installation of these programs for graduate students who are pursuing thesis or dissertation research and require one of these programs for their research data analysis. Requests for home use must be endorsed by a professor who is guiding or sponsoring the student research activity.

Students may initiate a request for home use of software by submitting a UNT System IT Help Ticket. Students are encouraged to provide sufficient contact information to enable timely communication regarding their request.
